Results - Queens Grand League Regatta
Saturday, 08 December 2012 21:29
The first Grand League Regatta of 2013 was run by Queens University Belfast at Castlewellan, Co Down on 27th April.   Due to the distance involved the club had a relatively small entry but, as it transpired, a very high quality one.    From eight events we secured five victories, a third and two fourths.     
The winners were the Women's Intermediate Quad (Daisy Callanan, Clodagh Scannell, Clodagh O'Sullivan and Saorise Horgan);   The Men's Junior 18 pair (Colm Hennessy and Luke Carroll);  The Men's Single Scull (Andy Harrington - with Jack Casey a very close 2nd); The Women's Junior 18 pair (Daisy Callanan and Clodagh Scannell); The Men's Junior 18 Double (Andy Harrington and Jack Casey).
These results should see us very well placed on the Grand League tables - particularly in the Men's Division One - which are due to be published shortly.    With our two "home" regattas at the National Rowing Centre - Cork and Skibereen- yet to come we can be  optimistic about our ability to compete for top honours in one or more of the four Divisions in 2013.
